I can safely say that Metamorpho has almost no chance of being in this game.

BB has a chance, but is unlikely. Very unlikely.

Your speculation about Batman making a sacrifice of some kind is totally believable and would be an unexpected twist.

I do hope though, as you do, that the narrative isn't too predictable and there are some surprises to be found.

Ahh thanks for that! I was fumbling around trying to get images from Injustice 2 off Google for the community since as of now the icon and background are so outdated hahaha. Anyone who currently jumps in to consider joining is greeted by my low res image of Batman's chin :(. I haven't been on yet today but I'm going to try to work on it (I called in sick last night oops).

Yeah, I secretly want like 10 other Batman villains myself, including Two-Face.

He could be the stereotypical mobster type character throwing molotovs, summoning henchmen, blasting with a sawed-off shotgun, smacking you around with a baseball bat, slitting your throat with a pocket knife as a grab etc. Then his gimmicks would be a coin toss that creates 50/50 high/low situations.

Honestly, everything you just wrote sold me on two face lol. I would totally be fine with his inclusion. I do expect that 1 or 2 dlc characters will come completely out of left field and surprise everyone.

NRS always gives us a few unexpected (yet sensible) picks as DLC. Batgirl and Zod are among some of DC's most well-known characters, but nobody was expecting them for the first game. I feel like we're going to get at least one iconic character who lacks Internet chatter, like Bizarro or Penguin.

Even if they have material texture, that's fine. It would just be nice to have a classic look without all the armor prices. The 70s style Batman in Arkham City was great.

Penguin would be so weird but I could totally see that. I remember when we found out Batgirl and Zod were in IJ1 as dlc I was completely surprised which is nice, and I kind of want that same surprise. Of course I'm still rooting for Constantine though lol. And how about an Azrael premiere skin for Batman?

True lol. There are differently some other avenues of DC that deserve some recognition. While we know that not every character will have a premiere skin (never thought as much), what are some premiere skins that you/everyone would want to see or think logically have a chance?

Batman - Azreal
Green Arrow - Red Arrow

And my brain goes kerplunk...

I would like to see him with a design that's kind of the middle ground between the creepy DCAU version above and the modern iteration (with nods to the black and yellow classic).

I can see him summoning life-sized Kryptonite toy soldiers, drive RC cars that can shoot, throw teddy bears that explode, shock you with a hand buzzer, cut you up with a bladed yo-yo, throw silly putty that sticks you to the ground, throw laser shooting Rubik's cube, shoot acid out of a watergun, throw jacks on the ground like caltrops, get you entangled in a slinky...I could go on and on. The super could be either him getting into a retro-future mech and beaming you or getting into a giant cymbal-banging monkey and smashing you a bunch of times between the cymbals.

I REALLY really hope they do this. This game with the way it's been made really calls for a long, healthy lifespan.

I'm thinking we should set a GAF Injustice 2 gear enabled tournament up for either the Friday or Saturday the week of release. Who's down?

It'll be interesting to see if they keep their 2-year cycle going. I don't really think another MK is needed in two years. I hope they just do an MKX update and keep I2 support longer. That or a horror icon game.

It's the MK anniversary this year so I expect some sort of game, even just a port or remaster to be announced before Christmas.

I don't follow MK that much, but what does the MK community want/expect next? Do they want a new game in 2 years? With the current pattern, we haven't gotten more than one of each per console generation.

An MK character in Injustice.


MK9 came out with 5 years into the consoles lifespan and even then MKX was planned for PS3/360 before it was cancelled. MKX came out two years after the consoles released. It's not the same really. Also technically we got 2 MK games last gen.

Man, if we controlled the roster, it'd be incredible. I foresee universal praise, but also page after page of "who.gif".

NRS should throw Trophy Hunters a bone and add Platinum to the roster via DLC.

Capcom is independent so they don't really have to please anyone but themselves and fans, NRS is owned by WB which owns DC so they have to appease their bosses as well.

Just thinking about a possible move set for Mxy makes my brain hurt. So much potential right there, even if I'm not a fan of the character.

I can't honestly say that I'd be excited by a Capcom DC fighter. NRS has proven themselves 100% capable of delivering an authentic representation of the DC universe. I don't have faith in Capcom to be able to do the same.

Capcom needs Marvel's permission for its roster choices, too. Marvel turned down a lot of characters that Capcom wanted to include in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

I think the lack of significantly varying character models in Injustice is more of a technical decision than an editorial one.

An unconventional character wouldn't work at all with the mechanics NRS likes to use.

It would end up being nothing more then a gimmick that is either frustrating to fight, or completely useless.

I'm not sure about that... It's not like they haven't done really bizarre, unconventional, and at times broken characters before.



Though I hold out hope for Zebron to make his glorious debut.

Goro and Ferra/Torr are bipedal humanoids in the same height range as the rest of the roster, and Motaro hasn't appeared in any of NRS' recent games. I'm talking more along the lines of Shuma-Gorath, Amaterasu, and Rocket Raccoon style characters.

Not for Marvel 2 where you got the true unknowns like Marrow and Silver Samurai, the most obscure on Marvel's side in 3 was like MODOK and I was literally in the middle of an A.I.M. comic arc that featured him heavily when the game was released.

I doubt it's technical as much as hit/hurtbox related. For an air fighter like Marvel you can have a sentinel, how do you make a person that size work in IGAU.

You could do Starro, it would be goofy looking, but you could do it.

However, Starro is not a character I would think NRS would like to do.
If they did it, they would probably just use a b list space character with Starro slapped to their face, and make a combination character.
